Recognition of Football Substitutes.
[We invite all men in the University to submit communications on subjects of timely interest.]
To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
The University football squad consisted this year of some thirty players. Eighteen of these are now privileged to wear the "H." The remaining thirteen men, comprising the substitutes taken to New Haven, are not recognized by the awarding of any insignia. The second team, an inferior body of players, on the other hand, are awarded the "H 2nd." Is it not manifestly unfair that the substitutes are not awarded some token for their valuable services? Every man on the track team who is entered in the dual meet with Yale is given an "AHA." It seems to the writer that every man who is taken to New Haven with the football team as a substitute or who is on the University squad at the time of the Yale game is entitled to quite as much recognition as the track man entered in the dual meet.
